Reunited and it feels so good!

Our favorite television BFFs — Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) and Lexi Branson (Arielle Kebbel) — have finally found each other once again! While Lexi may have trapped herself on the Other Side forever during the Season 5 finale of The Vampire Diaries, it looks like the actors are still closer than ever in the real world.

“Per your request... #tvd #bmif2 #selfie #tvbff #Q&A @paulwesley,” Arielle tweeted along with a photo of her and Paul at a TVD event. Clearly some fans had been asking to see the on-screen besties hang out again and she was glad to oblige!

Our hearts were filled with joy when Lexi showed up in the Season 5 finale, joining up with Stefan when he arrived on the Other Side after dying in the previous episode. When everyone else — including Alaric Saltzman (Matt Davis) — made their way through Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham) back to the land of the living, Lexi saw how much it was hurting her and decided to stay dead. It was pretty devastating.

Even though it’s pretty obvious Lexi is gone forever now that the Other Side is gone, we will get to see more of the fun-loving gal in Season 6 thanks to one of TVD’s greatest plot devices: flashbacks. We can’t wait to see her back in action once again!

Would you like to see these two hang out more often? Hit the comments and sound off!
